European Certification Standard Manual - Quality criteria for long-distance cycle routes

The European Certification Standard (ECS) is a methodology developed by ECF to assess cycling routes, EuroVelo or not, and evaluate their quality. It can be used to survey and assess the quality of national/regional routes, and to certify EuroVelo routes if the criteria are met. It can help set up national standards where they do not exist and harmonise the different regulations in the European states. This manual on the ECS provides a quick introduction to the basic principles and criteria of this methodology.
